a whole lot easier. >>> rush limbaugh once again today going where few dare to go, accusing speaker pelosi of playing the nazi card. >> she called these people na nazis. >> speaker pelosi is not making this up. look at these first person pictures sent to us from chicago. that person's sign says, stop obama's nazi health care cuts and this person put a hitler mustache on the president. high-minded debate intend. here with us, mike stark and phillip klein. phillip, do you want to take this opportunity to condemn limbaugh when he compares president obama to hitler? >> i think there's no excuse for it. those comments were out of line, but i have to laugh at the sort of liberals sort of discovering it's offensive to speak of the president this way. move on.org ran an ad comparing bush to hitler. dick durbin compared u.s. servicemen -- it's absolutely wrong, but the point is is that you know, during -- you could take a picture of someone at a rally and fintd all sorts of extremists. i remember during the bush years, i used to go to antiwar rallies. i got heckled because i'm jewish and supported

others speak on this. rush limbaugh does not like it. hear what he has to say about that phrase in a moment. bill o'reilly goes on the record. he says something that has people furious. if you do not like it, tough. what is going on with him? olivia newton-john is ex- boyfriend presumed dead for years. hold onto your seat for this one. but first, the health care war just got hotter. first the protesters were called angry mobs. now unamerican. in 000, it is now evident that an ugly campaign is underway not nearly to misrepresent the health care insurance reform legislation but to prevent members from congress and constituents from conducting a civil dialogue. are these people unamerican. >> let's do it. we are not going to do anything until you take care of this. >> who sent me here? i set myself. how dare you say i am part of a conspiracy. how dare you. >> i have read the bill. i do not know that you have. >> this was brought out in the early 1930's in germany. >> i hope we can do this in a civilized manner without dulling. -- yelling. >> they are discriminating based on certain
limbaugh or anne coulter or michelle malkin. he is a united states senator. there should be certain things he does not do or say. >> do we assume in both of these cases somebody got to them both in isakson's case and in grassley's and said if do you not repudiate what you seem to have said yesterday this good behavior, this societally cognizant willingness to compromise, if you don't do that we'll never contribute to you again? >> well, remember. senator grassley has received over $2 million from the drug and health insurance industry since 2003. but equally troubling, keith, is the fact that senator bachus has received $1.5 million just in the last two years so there are people who can really do everything they can and use fear to undermine reform. that's why we haven't had reform for so many years. >> could there be a silver lining in this, arianna? with the senator embracing supposedly the good senator among the republicans embracing the death panel nonsense could that be a tipping point in terms of freeing democrats from this nonsense waste of time, you can't talk sense to a stone, fal
is standing by to go on the record. greta: rush limbaugh is not happy about it. rush limbaugh in his own words, next. and senator tom daschle got bumped from the cabinet for tax problems, so why is he often at the white house with president obama? we will tell you what senator daschle says, and is something of a little bit too cozy going on? and our national debt is spiralling out of control, and getting worse by the second, literally exploding, but there is something you do not know. caution. your head might explode when we tell you this, but, first, we are not surprised president obama needs a vacation. the town hall meetings. >> we could have a high school debating team come up with a better bill than this in 30 days. >> legislation is going to cost more than $1 trillion. how are we going to afford that? >> might out of pocket costs -- my out-of-pocket costs. greta: councilwoman maxine waters just had a town hall, and there was some name-calling. >> we are going to do everything that we can to organize -- neanderthals ççwe are going to say to prest obama, "we want you to use every weapo
to unseat her next year means we might get to still have michelle bachman to laugh at. boss limbaugh asks if bill clinton hit on two reporters he helped free from a north korean prison. worst persons coming up when rachel joins you at the top of the hour governor mark sanford's press secretary just resigned today. but first because they may be gone but their deeds obviously outlive them the breaking headlines still lingering from the previous administration's 50 running scandals still bushed. number three, attorneysgate. remember the name rachel peloze the 33-year-old former office assistant to alberto gonzalez best friend of monica goodling? somehow she wound up as the u.s. attorney for minnesota where she mishandled classified information and gave an employee enough ammunition for 96 discrimination lawsuits by referring to that employee with terms like "fat" and "black" and "ass" and "lazy" and four of her top lieutenants demoted themselves in protest. she is working for us again and has been hired by the miami regional office of the securities and exchange commission and in her new job
: they tried to do that with rush limbaugh, and i think they had a victory by having rush limbaugh running the republican party, and now they are trying to do that to fox ms. buy saying, "fox news is trying to destroy it -- they are trying to do that with fox news by saying, "fox news is trying to distort it -- to destroy it. do not let them." >> they are pointing out the facts about it. i have had 150,000 people buy my book so far. people are learning the facts and understanding that if this thing goes through it is going to be like canada. 8-week waits if you have cancer. canada has a 25% higher cancer rates. this is life and death. bill: if they do not get the micro of it, they are getting the macro of it, that there are going to be big changes, and the changes could be harmful. budick morris, everybody. by his book, "catastrophe." directly ahead, senator claire mccaskill will be here. i will be gentle with her. and later, miley cyrus. is the 16-year-old being marketed as a sex sex taking its rightful place in a long line of amazing performance machines. this is the new e-coupe. this is
into politics next at the "morning meeting." rush limbaugh patting himself on the back on a prediction he made on the timing of ted kennedy's death. gecko vo: you see, it's not just telling people geico could save 'em hundreds on car insurance. it's actually doing it. gecko vo: businessmen say "hard work equals success." well, you're looking at, arguably, the world's most successful businessgecko. gecko vo: first rule of business: "hard work e" gecko vo: that's why geico is consistently rated excellent or better in terms of financial strength. gecko vo: second rule: "don't steal a coworker's egg salad, 'specially if it's marked "the gecko." come on people. was it really for fun, or to save money on heat? why? don't you think nordic tuesday is fun? oh no, it's fun... you know, if you are trying to cut costs, fedex can help. we've got express options, fast ground and freight service-- you can save money and keep the heat on. great idea. that is a great idea. well, if nordic tuesday wasn't so much fun. (announcer) we understand. you need to save money. fedex and my dog bailey and i love to hang
limbaugh is pushing the nazi theme, comparing on his website the obama health care logo with the nazi swastika and devoting plenty of air time comparing the president's the united states and house speaker nancy pelosi to adolf hitler. >> the obama health care logo is damn close to a nazi swastika. there are far more similarities between nancy pelosi and adolf hitter than between these people showing up at town halls to protest a hitler-like policy. that's being heralded by hitler-like logo. oh, another similarity. obama is asking citizens to wrap each other out, like hitler did. >> he's just like hitler. you know what that means? he deserves, right? that's where the actual republican party, the would-be responsible adult, opposed to health care reform. rnc chairman michael steele is going for the, who me? approach saying there is absolutely nothing to do with encouraging angry town hall protests. mr. steele said in a conference call, we're not encouraging people to be angry. some people that's how they express frustration, but that's not something deliberately coordinated by me or any
limbaugh back at the end of may saying that obama hates white people. pat buchanan saying white men are, quote, experiencing exactly what black people experienced during segregation, which is, of course, absurd, that kind of rhetoric underlying this opposition makes it very hard for me to think that race is not in the picture. >> okay. so then if we're going to put blame on anyone's shoulders, whose fault is it anyway? is it people buying in the rhetoric or some of the people you mention, some of the conservative talk show hosts there. should they be more responsible with their language because people may be buying into what they're saying and not realizing that it's coded racism. >> well, words have consequences, and i think if you're going to have a microphone and you're going to speak to millions of listeners every day, you have a responsibility to, first of all, do your homework so you don't tell lies about the health care bill and act like they're going to kill grandma and then send sarah palin out there with a head full of nothing to tell lies to the american people. and when you
or sean hannity and rush limbaugh. i find this as almost unprecedented. we just saw a veteran at the time but ship -- tim bishop town hall. let's look at these people that are the angry mobs. it is an elderly woman asking a question. this is all part of the angry mob. roll that tape. >> harry reid and the rest of the people in congress and the senate, are they going to be on the same plan they are asking us to be on? sean: does she seem like an angry mob? she seems like she could be my mom. >> according to barbara boxer, if you dress neatly, you are neatlyrent-a-mob -- you are a rent-a-mob. they outrage has been stirred up and they have the nerve to accuse this legal lady and the veteran and other people of being a fake. you cannot get actors that. sean: what is the net result? i think i know the answer. if you try to smear the american people, as far as i recall, we are still "we, the people," if you discredit them, what is the net political fallout of doing something like that? >> i think the net political fallout is this is an act of desperation. they see this thing slipping away betwe
in. >> here is no surprise, rush limbaugh did not like what the congresswoman had to say. >> represented to betsy markey told a gathering of constituents that some people will have to give it a chance to fix the system. >> no one is one to suffer any benefit cuts. but here are the democrats running around. there have to be. folks, medicaid and. he is also a doctor. >> people are going to revolt of that what happens. >> they have the votes. he can do it. he does not have to listen to you. why should they really care if they really felt passionate about this bill. >> let's see if they really do have the votes. and we have to u.s. senators that will vote against this bill. it is up to you to make sure that your other senator also votes against it. there are others that are concerned about voting for this, especially with what is going on economically. we do not have -- we are looking at a mountain of debt. some recipients will have to help reform the medical benefits. >> she is talking about a medical bill that has 33 new entitlements. this is a huge expansion and it is not
tactic. they have attacked fox, rush limbaugh, sean hannity, health care industry, banks, big business. they always need someone to hate. >> campaign politics is about division in my view, having covered a lot of campaigns, but who do you make your enemies? in the end you need insurance companies. no one says this, his plan, insurance companies won't turn a profit. that's going to happen. sean: even the c.b.o. says, tens of millions of people are going to be forced into that public option, if you believe the heritage foundation. they are predicting 88 million people will be forced out. >> look, the administration has to answer these questions. we can't just go blindly into accepting health care program that hasn't had any -- i mean, look, we haven't divided the health care program up enough to understand what the future is going to bring about and i think the american people right now are frustrated. you know, i can't take the two sides of this, but what i can tell you, i'm getting emails every day from the american people and they feel they aren't being listened to. sean: it's one thi
! greta: one person says that it is less an opposition and more like astroturf, and rush limbaugh does not like it. >> i find itç interesting that the democrats are starting to refer to these towncar meetings as unruly mobs, we cannot promise security -- we are referring to these town hall meetings as unruly mobs. no, these are citizens. what these democrats are accusing you of doing it at these town-hall meetings is exactly what obama taught people to do. heç is the community agitator. he is the community organizer. he is the guy who taught people to show up at events over and over again and read people up, tear them down, disrupt them, and make sure it does not happen, and now, it is happening to them, it is not a ginned up, is genuine. -- not gin up. it is genuine. -- not ginned up. >> i will answer any questions they have. if they want to come over to the white house and answered line by line what is going on, i will be happy to do that. greta: but is president obama even going to read this bill? listen closely to press secretary robert gibbs. >> will be president read the enti
blaming boogiemen. stop blaming top delay. stop blaming karl rove. they have no power. rush limbaugh has no power. fox news has no power to stop this. democrats own washington, d.c. so stop setting up strawmen. like barack obama's been doing from day one and then knocking them down. >> does that mean i can still blame newt gingrich for quite a bit of our problems? >> you and dale hunt can get together and have a newt party if you want. >> don't give them a target. >> seriously, it's just laughable. they always set up these straw men and knock them down. people have figured it out. wait a second. they own the senate. they own the house. they own the white house. conservatives can't do anything. we can't do anything to stop healthcare reform. if democrats decide they want to pass healthcare reform, there's not a damn thing a conservative in america can do to stop it. >> joining the conversation, contributing editor to "new york" magazine, gabriel sherman. he writes, "brooks frequently seems more sympathetic toward obama than the liberal paul krugman. he has written columns praising obama's
limbaugh saying the health care logo looks like a russian swastika? >> i don't know what to say about that. americans are suffering under the rising costs of health care, they are paying 30% more out of pocket than they did, it's threatening their jobs, they are being denied health coverage. >> we're debating that. >> trying to discuss that in a civil way is extremely important. >> you were a journalist for three decades, you worked for abc, cbs, you were a guest on this program many times. is it uncomfortable to be pushing an administration line on health care on people who were your former colleagues. >> you mean trying to promote, advocate on behalf of health insurance reform is a gratifying thing to do. this is the country's greatest need. they have been waiting for decades -- >> if you were still a journalist you would be sitting in this seat asking the questions i am. instead you're a saleswoman. >> it's something all of us in the administration believe deeply. as a journalist i covered the last effort to try to bring health insurance reform to the country. i saw how the special inte
is afraid of rush limbaugh, apparently, because he is encouraging all this stuff. >> the democrats are pulling a rabbit out of a hat, and the republicans are handing the democrats their rabbit. the democrats have no argument. they have no fathers. they -- they have no facts. they don't really have a bill. if people were really just to stand up quietly and civilly raise questions, the money doesn't add up, the c.b.o. has said that you say it is going to control costs but it increases it by a trillion dollars. all of this stuff, it's really out there. they would be winning these debates as they were before the town halls. what is happening is this is causing a backlash. it is completely unnecessary. it is shooting yourself in the foot. if you want to demonstrate, you want to shout, do you it outside carrying a sign. when you walk inside, you ask a question, is this going to have two effects? one, a public opinion will make people unsympathetic to those who oppose the bill, and secondly, it is going to give a great excuse for the democrats when congress returns to push a partisan bill
, rush limbaugh. you said, we have to tone down the militant and accusatory rhetoric. >> we do. we do. >> is it fair to blame the broadcasters for this atmosphere? >> yeah. the broadcasters have -- coping with a downward trend in advertising revenues for talk radio, the broadcasters have ramped up what they are saying. you have broadcaster saying the president is, quote, literally at war with the american people, literally at war is a very serious thing. al qaeda is literally at war. >> and has a deep-seated hatred for white people. >> and the thing that's so outrageous, people are getting more excited about than the details of health care. yes, this is a moment where because the president has advanced these ideas at a time of fiscal crisis, the republicans have an opportunity to reshape the president's plan in a way that is consistent with conservative values, to get control of costs, to improve competition, to defeat the public option -- >> and instead? >> and instead, the republicans are making some tactical gains at the price of making themselves look less like a future government
premiums. this is unsustainable, if i can't stand up to some screamers and to rush limbaugh, then i don't deserve to be in the united states senate. >> is there a democratic versus republican fight going on that is about health care policy? if we -- everybody acknowledges the numbers -- most people acknowledge the number of uninsured out of control costs, the difficulties, not only for american families, but for our economy and our international competitiveness in terms of our business. are republicans proposing a different way to meet those challenges? or are they saying don't fix it, it's fine? >> they're the party as nope. and i like to think of myself in the party of hope. it's no, it's no about everything. and you know, i don't think they do buy into the fact that this is a problem for most americans. they say we have the greatest health care in the world. well, the fact is, we pay twice as much and our outcomes aren't as good. we have 48 million people with no health care as a result they walk into emergency rooms. it's costing every american who is insured $1,100 to pick up the c
the president retake center stage? >> i hadn't seen the rush limbaugh thing. that is insane. what he's saying is insane. the first thing is it has been conventional wisdom among the smartest people in washington, this is a tough issue that needs to be done on a bipartisan basis. the obama administration decided not to. leaders of both parties could have gone out to the meetings. they didn't do that. they chose more or less a democratic plan and now all hell is breaking loose. it's not just the crazy, among who we just saw some. if you take overall ratings for health care, the american public is as skeptical as they were when clinton care collapsed. so, it's not just the crazies. there is a real public concern about real issues. >> when you look at this from the approval rating and the quinnipiac poll, the president's handling of health care. here are the numbers. approvals at 39%, disapprovals at 52%, erin. that's the question. big battle lines about whether this is manufactured grassroots organizing, opposition against health care. the truth is there are people who are angry and there are pe
and laura ling into a diplomatic disaster. and limbaugh asks if president clinton hit on them. >> we saw standing before us president bill clinton. >> blackwater continues. more charges against eric prince running a jihad against muslims involved as witnesses against his company and tonight while supposedly protecting americans in iraq illegally dealing arms there. gitmo after threatening, torturing and imprisoning without charge or evidence could the bush administration possibly have sunk lower? yes, they bought fake testimony from witnesses with cash and shoes. the bubble headed bleach blond comes on at 6:00. >> in my home state of minnesota so far only two of these deals have actually been approved by the government. >> close, ms. news actress. 2%. not two. 2%. that would be different. and speaking of minnesota, the
civility and discourse. kind of a turnaround for sarah palin. >> yeah. i'm thinking rush limbaugh is saying what is next. >> there's a thought. >> we'll see. i think rush take ha it in him. somewhere in that man is an opportunity. he is right half the time. >> is there some sort of psychological coaching you're doing him? come to civility where we don't talk over each other! otherwise, it ends up as a dance! you do on tv! >> all right. carlos is up next. he has all sorts of thing, including new conservative strategies and silicon valley secrets. a little fun with technology and hope there maybe, the driverless car or synthetic organs, i can't say. contessa with you at 2:00. break after this. but did you know you also get hotel price assurance? it's a one-two punch of savings -- pow! pow! lower hotel booking fees mean you get a lower total price. plus, if another orbitz customer then books the same hotel for less, we send you a check for the difference, automatically. ♪ once you've dealt with the things that come between you... don't let erectile dysfunction get in the way. ♪ viva ♪ vi
those. >> okay. >> i did find your article interesting yesterday. rush limbaugh showed great restraint, saying that he felt uncomfortable saying anything negative about senator kennedy as did michelle maul klkin, shed other republicans, back off. >> the only thing he said was senator kennedy was lion and we were his prey. that was actually pretty tame. chap paquiddick was one of the biggest buzz words online. ted kennedy may get the last word or a piece of his critics more in death than life. he has a new memoir coming out, being buds as his most open and honest discussions about some of the things that have taken place in his past. you have to assume chappaquiddick is one of those a. lot of critics say we think he should have talked about it more and apologized more and perhaps his book will put it to rest. >> he hasn't talked about it in 40 years and every time asked, said i answered those questions. anniversary coming up, not a good one in a couple weeks. the anniversary of the fall of lehman brothers, hard to believe it's been a year. september 15th. how will the white house mark t
